Oh, but he SPEAKS so well!

Is there nothing that can expose Barak Obama as little more than the second coming of Jimmy Carter? His speaking gaffes are bad enough, and even true great speakers like Ronald Reagan had their share. But it’s the factual contradictions , and the lack of media attention to them, that’s REALLY leaving me baffled.

Look at the entry below this one: his campaign outright LIED in its statement, flatly exposed by Obama’s own written words (and it’s especially interesting, in light of his campaign’s efforts to keep Muslim women, with their heads covered, out of photo ops). His youthful drug use, major issues in other campaigns, receives zero attention, in spite of AGAIN being written about by Obama himself (instead of some offbeat loony “investigator”).

For his latest twisting of facts, the media's new messiah slanders Dr. James Dobson, ridicules our service men and women and twists the Bible to fit his weird theological outlook (in the 2006 clip featured here on a Dobson broadcast, Obama was trying to impress Call to Renewal, a liberal religious organization). Where is the outrage from the Christian community over this open distortion?

Then there is his chilling video address to a radical organization made for the Iowa caucus (available on YouTube), in which he openly calls for disarming America, so that the world community will happily follow along (right). Even his commending the Supreme Court for bestowing constitutional rights on foreign terrorists who have declared war on us (including Osama bin Laden) has hardly raised any alarms.

The public seems to be mesmerized by Obama’s oratory skills, instead of examining the substance of his message. Sure, the mainstream media are (with a few exceptions) left-wing-but are they THAT ignorant? The only thing that seems to get the MSM attention is the bottom line: money. You may not remember how rabid the media was in opposing Ronald Reagan while he was president, especially in the re-election year of 1984. However, they also realized that to sell papers and airtime, they had to appeal to the public which, they rightly discerned, held the Great Communicator in very high regard. Hence, the investigation of Democratic VP candidate Geraldine Ferraro over her husband’s real estate dealings, and their backing off of Reagan ( that year, Reagan won every state except Massachusetts and Walter Mondale’s home state of Minnesota).

I’m not sure such a scenario will occur in this election campaign--but you never know, with gas prices going through the ceiling and Obama saying it would have been so much better if they went up a lot slower (yes, he said that). And should he become president and wreck the nation in several years, you can be sure these same leftists will turn on him (just as they turned on Carter in 1980). I just hope the church wakes up to what Obama REALLY stands for, instead of being “awestruck” by empty rhetoric and slick “religious consultants” (Obama’s director of religious affairs is a former AG assistant pastor; talk about your wolf in sheep’s clothing).
